the clearest of the "Higher" papers I came to an odd conclusion as I was trying to read three papers and see where they were going---I'll toss it out in case anybody might be able to elaborate, or have a different idea It is that the clearest of the papers is the 2005 one "Higher Gauge Theory" of Baez and Schreiber. This is the one that, for me, TELLS THE STORY. or tells it the most simply, in the fewest pages, up front. It says why twogroups. All these "Higher" papers are thin and downloadable. You can easily print them off and they are short enough to read without having to worry about what to skip. What I am saying is that the BaezSchreiber one is the one that works best JOURNALISTICALLY. As you read it you can know for certain why you are. I will try to tell the story in the next post. It may take a day or so (the next realworld day is very busy for me) and anybody who wants can take over.
